Updates from the Principal

July 27, 2022

Hello Kindergarten Parents and Guardians! 

This is just a quick note to raise awareness about the upcoming kindergarten playdate so that you can save the date. A formal invitation and flyer will be headed your way via email early next week.

Our amazing PTO will be sponsoring a playdate for our incoming kindergarten students on August 17th from 5:45 PM - 7:00 PM.  Attending the playdate will give the students an opportunity to meet new friends while playing on the playground, and it will give parents and guardians an opportunity to make connections with other kindergarten parents and guardians.  PTO members and I will be in attendance to welcome all parents and students!  

Courtesy of PTO, our newest students can look forward to some treats and goodies.  We hope that you are able to join us!

Enjoy the remaining days of summer!


Dan Brown

Principal, Kent Primary School

As facilitators of learning, we utilize a multitude of resources to model and promote these desired outcomes. A strong cohesive community.

What We Do:
As an academic institution we contribute to the development of minds through inspiring children to create and pursue their own goals and objectives.
